Last year Marc brought his ‘Family Funnies’ comics to Spiralbound on Medium, an online publishing platform. The comic was his first non-fiction work showcasing family life and the craziness of being a parent. He is also the editor and publisher of GOOF! an online comic for all ages which launched in 2018. It features a feast of funny book creators and it’s main aim was to show the world the diversity in comics through the medium of online publishing. Last year he release his first comic for an older audience GROW A PAIR along with a comic for first time readers Hotdog and Mustard.
As well as making all the comics, he regularly runs Cartoon clubs in both Schools and Libraries around the country, encouraging children to draw with no rules and concern for making mistakes just to enjoy furious felt-pen fun!! His ‘How to draw a robot without looking’ workshop is both great fun and total insanity all at the same time!
This year Marc will release a new mini-series ‘Spookids’ from his own Weirdo comics imprint.
